Dr. Jonny Bowden: ‘Living Low Carb’ Isn’t As Dangerous As People Think

Filed under: Health — @ April 14, 2010

I hear from people everyday who tell me that they can’t figure out which of the multitudes of low-carb diets they should try. My philosophy has always been for people to find the plan that will work for them, follow that plan exactly, and then keep doing that plan for the rest of their lives. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a handy resource that compares all the different plans that are out there to closely examine which is right for you? Well, I’ve got good news for you because such a resource does exist and the author of it is today’s podcast interview guest.

In Episode 352 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we hear from returning guest and nutrition expert Dr. Jonny Bowden who has released a new 2010 version of his classic Living The Low-Carb Life book called Living Low-Carb: Controlled-Carbohydrate Eating for Long-Term Weight Loss. Known for his prolific writings and motivational speaking style, Jonny says now more than ever people need to educate themselves about the amazing health benefits of livin’ la vida low-carb. Listen to him talk about why he switched from a music career to become a health and fitness guru, his fortuitous meeting with Dr. Barry Sears, how he became such a prolific writer, what his surprise dream writing gig would be, why they decided to update and expand this book in 2010, the major differences between the old and new book including a discussion of the new chapters that were added, why he chose to put some non-low-carb fitness books into the new book, how the cultural shift of thinking about sugar/carbs has changed in recent years, Dr. Mehmet Oz’ supportive views of low-carb diets, the added chapters including “why doesn’t your doctor know about this stuff?” and an expanded myths section, his unique view on calories, why he has concerns over Dr. Loren Cordain’s Paleo Diet, why he describes Dr. Arthur Agatston’s South Beach Diet as “Atkins without the commitment,” the health benefits of avoiding factory-farmed meat as much as possible, why grassfed meats are superior, the reasons why he believes in specific supplements for health and weight loss, the very thorough FAQ section, why low-carb living as a lifestyle change never really went away, and why Gary Taubes’ Good Calories Bad Calories was not included among the diet comparisons.
